NO PARENTAL RIGHTS FOR MURDERERS PROPOSAL

By Bob Katzen

Bill # (H 2285) – Removes a child from the custody of his or her parent who is convicted of murdering the child’s other parent.

The measure provides a few exemptions including allowing custody by the convicted parent if the child requests it and the court determines that the child is mature enough to make that decision. Another exemption allows custody if the convicted parent suffered from physical, sexual or psychological abuse from the murdered parent.
